1... This cute Christmas card (top left).
holiday board 2013 by Haylee, see more holiday photo cards

This above collage is my entry for the Minted inspiration board challenge this year. If anyone else enters let me know so I can send your board some love! 

2... Buzzcut Season by Lorde. I listen to this song about, 15 times per day. haha really though. I know Lorde is all the rage right now but at least the hype is warranted this time, I loove her voice. 

3... This little lady. How there can be so much talent wrapped up into one person is beyond me. Seriously I need to stop looking at this blog, it's making me question everything about any sewing ability I ever thought I once had. haha really though, this girl is amazing.

4... Netflix.. So here's the thing. I was into Breaking Bad for a while but then it just got to be too much for me. Too much gah, I don't know, just horribleness. Maybe I'm naive but I couldn't handle it. So I want a new show. I was thinking Carrie Diaries maybe? (Polar opposite from Breaking Bad. haha) Or else right now I've been into Untold Stories of the ER. But please, suggestions are welcome!

5... Ghost Map by Steven Johnson. About the cholera epidemic in London in the 1860s. Super, super fascinating! And I have a love affair with London currently so that makes it all the better. 

6... Bijou Market. This weekend in Provo! I love when this is held. Local people I hope to see you all there!

  1. Girl, I've got the best show for you! Its a BBC series called The Paradise and I just found a YouTube channel that puts all the episodes up as soon as they air in the UK. Of course it comes on PBS here in the states, but apparently it's really behind and they keep playing re-runs:(
    I'm waiting for episode 6 of season 2 to come out, and I'm just way too excited about it!

  2. I love getting into shows on Netflix! New Girl always has me laughing! My guilty pleasure was watching all 6 seasons of Gossip Girl. Maybe you'll like those!

    1. Oh my gosh!! How did I forget about Gossip Girl, Rachel thank you! I totally have already seen the first two seasons but then didn't have access to the 3rd at the time and so just stopped watching it. But holy cow they're all on Netflix! I had no idea, Yep found my new show! haha thank you Rachel

  4. I love the Bijou market! And you're right that girl is amazing, though I think you are a great seamstress too!

    I love, love, love Once Upon a Time (2 season on Netflix) and Hart of Dixie. Hart of Dixie has a pretty cheesy pilot but it's turned into a great show.

    1. Sometimes the cheesiest shows are the best though I swear! (Lizzie McGuire and That's So Raven come to mind, haha) I just looked up the plot for Hart of Dixie though and it looks really good! I love the medical part it has thrown in there. I also love love that Rachel Bilson is in it! I love her, I had no idea.

      I've also heard SO much about Once Upon a Time, I can't believe I forgot about that one! Too bad the 1st seasons not on Netflix, maybe I'll have to order it and then catch up with the second season.

    2. Just kidding! I just realized the 2nd season IS on Netflix, yay! I misunderstood what you meant so yay I'm really glad. Thanks so much for the suggestions Whitney!

  5. As far as shows on Netflix go, some of my favorites have been: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Adventure Time, Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23 (which was unfairly cancelled, based around the concept of what it would be like to roommate with Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's), Archer, Futurama, Wilfred, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, etc. I don't have cable, so I get far too much use out of Netflix TV shows.

    1. Ok I had no idea that that was the plot for Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 and now I'm totally bummed it got canceled! That is such a great idea for a plot, Dang it, I seriously hate when that happens. Why did it get canceled? I feel like it was a pretty popular show and everything. Annoying, well I think I still might watch it just because I think it sounds super fascinating. haha thanks so much for the suggestion!

  6. I love The Walking Dead (which may fit into the too much ew category too), New Girl, Call the Midwife, and Downton Abbey!

    1. New Girl! Ok that one is officially going to the top of my list, I actually can't believe I haven't started it yet considering how much I love Zooey Deschanel. Call the Midlife looks really good too! Thanks so much for the suggestions Ashley, that was really helpful.

  9. what a darling collage card Haylee, reminds me that i have got to get it together and start my own xmas card assembly factory soon :) a beautifully compiled experience - i'm sure your submission will receive tons of love!!

    i'm a breaking bad fan but can totally understand the "too much" of a "bad" thing so switching over to Carrie Diaries gets a huge yes from me. it's one of my top faved shows on teevz plus The Originals is awesome and of course it's precursor...Vamp Diaries wins every time.

    there's something about a cozy knit with crossed arms that makes my heart feel extra tender, love that pic!! happy weekend sweetness. ♥

    1. Thanks so much Lynn! That means a lot coming from you miss queen of Photoshop/graphic design! :)
      Vampire Diaries!! Oh my gosh, how did I forget about that one. My friends are obsessed with that show and I have yet to see a single episode so I really need to get on that.
      Thanks again cute girl! Hope you have an excellent weekend. :)

    1. Ugh it sucks because it's SUCH a good show and plot. Like I just wish I could somehow watch it without all the ickiness involved. Glad to know I'm not the only one though :)

    1. I just did it on the Minted site! They have a "board" feature where you can upload pics and create boards that way. Or else I also recommend Picasa! You download it onto your computer (I'm pretty sure it's free) and honestly I think it's waay easier than Photoshop. I use Photoshop every once in a while too but Picasa is a lot more user-friendly in a lot of ways, in my opinion at least.
      Thanks by the way! I'm always intimidated to post collages and stuff because there are so many bloggers out there who are freaking soo amazing at it. haha so really that means a lot, thanks so much cute girl!

  14. I LOVE The carrie diaries, it's cute. I also love new girl, definitely recommend new girl, I've watched every season. Also Gossip girl is an old favorite if you haven't finished that (although the later seasons aren't as good as the first 2).

    I've read Ghost Map! Funny how similar our tastes in books/documentaries are ;). I thought it was absolutely fascinating!

  15. If you're into Untold Stories of the ER, you'd probably eat up Grey's Anatomy!
    Plus, helloooo gorgeous men.

    My #1 show will always be How I Met Your Mother, though!
